3 Recipes To Eat Your Way To Better Heart Health

Your diet is the most powerful weapon to use in the fight against heart disease. Food can influence heart-attack risk factors like obesity, high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure levels.

Lower your risks of heart diseases by giving your plate an overhaul! A heart-healthy diet is essentially a low cholesterol diet. It should be rich in heart-loving foods like fruits and vegetables, fatty fishes that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and vegetable oils like olive oil.

Give your heart health a boost with these recipes, adapted from our Superfood Cookbook, that was developed in conjunction with Dietitians from the National Heart Institute.

  1. Greek-Inspired Grilled Chicken Skewers with Yoghurt Sauce

This dish was inspired by the eating habits of the Greek Isles and the Mediterranean diet. Olive oil and yoghurt are among the best foods that lower cholesterol fast. Studies have shown that they help the body increase levels of HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol) while decreasing levels of bad LDL cholesterol.

  1. Avocado Creamy Pasta

Cream-based pasta can be a nightmare for those watching their cholesterol levels and waistline. Our take on the classic alfredo pasta sauce makes use of lush Avocado for creaminess. Avocados are rich in heart-healthy polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats (the good stuff!), that promotes a healthier heart.  

Studies have also suggested that avocados can help you feel full for much longer, aiding those on a weight-loss journey! Plus they can even help with lowering blood sugar levels!

  1. Superfood Cheesecake

Current health guidelines suggest that cheese, being high in saturated fat, should be considered a danger to heart health. However, new research suggests that eating cheese might actually have a protective effect on your heart!

Bye bye, trans fat-laden baked goods! Our version of the Cheesecake features Kinohimitsu Superfood+, our fan-favourite nutritional drink mix for a healthier twist. While still an indulgence, our recipe features a better nutritional profile. Superfood+ adds essential vitamins, minerals and soluble fiber for a dessert that’s friendly to both your heart and cholesterol levels!
